Lumpia is a popular Filipino snack made with a thin, crepe-like wrapper. It is also known as a spring roll, and it can be served as a hot appetizer or a main dish. Typically, this dish is filled with meat, seafood, and/or vegetables.

In this twist on a beloved classic, I've prepared cheesy hot dog lumpia.

Ingredients

For the cheesy hot dog lumpia:

  • 1 hot dog, boiled, fried, or steamed
  • 8 small cheese sticks
  • 4 lumpia wrappers
  • cooking oil

For sealing the lumpia:

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water

Utensils

For Preparation:

  • 2 large plates
  • 1 small plate
  • 1 small bowl
  • knife
  • chopping board

For Cooking:

  • tongs
  • frying pan
  • saute pan

Instructions

  1. Dilute the cornstarch in water. Set aside.
  2. Slice cooked hot dog into quarters.
  3. Lay lumpia wrapper on a plate.
  4. Line a quarter of the hotdog and cheese sticks at least 2 inches above the bottom of the wrapper, leaving at least 1 to 1½ inches of space on each side
  5. Fold the lumpia wrapper from the bottom to the center. Then fold the wrapper from both the left and right sides to the center. From there, start rolling it.
  6. Seal the top part of the wrapper with the cornstarch and water mixture.
  7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 with the remaining ingredients.
  8. Once done, set up the frying pan. Heat enough oil to deep-fry the lumpia.
  9. Fry each piece until golden brown. Drain excess oil.
  10. Serve with your favorite dip.

Tips and Techniques

  • Serve with your favorite dip.
  • Use any kind of hot dog available.
  • Add any kind of cheese.
  • For best results, cook the hot dog before rolling it in the lumpia wrappers. You can boil, fry, or steam the hot dog.
  • Replace the cornstarch with similar products such as all-purpose flour, rice flour, etc. If you don't have any of these on hand, you can also just use plain water to seal the wrappers.

Hi Pamela,

It was actually my first time to try this snack. I must say that I really like it. The crunchiness of the outside texture plus the softness of the inside made the entire dish perfect.
